Pedestrian hit by truck

When pedestrians are hit by trucks, the resulting injuries can be extremely severe no matter how fast the vehicle was moving. The attorneys of Allen & Abaray, P.A. represent clients who were hit and injured by large trucks and other commercial vehicles. We also represent the family members of victims killed in pedestrian-truck accidents.

These accidents tend to fall into three categories:

  • Crosswalk accidents: Like other drivers, truckers have a duty to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Even if the pedestrian crosses outside of the crosswalk, the driver must give him or her the right-of-way.

  • Highway accidents: Sadly, there are many cases involving stranded motorists who park their cars of the side of a highway, get out to investigate a problem and are hit and killed by a truck.

  • Parking lot accidents: When trucks are backing up or maneuvering in a small space, truck drivers may not be aware of the pedestrians around them.

Large commercial trucks and buses are common carriers that have a heightened duty of care to pedestrians. In pedestrian-truck accidents, there may be multiple potential sources of liability. For example, the truck driver, the trucking company, the owner of the tractor, the owner of the trailer and the facility that maintained the truck may all bear some responsibility for the accident.
